Cool, Europeana, the EU cultural online library, is back up again, albeit still in a test phase. On its launch in November the site was swamped with hits and crashed. Great tool if you are feeling a little escapist.

Update (hat tip Brusselsblogger): Please check out Kosmopolito’s post on Europeana.

Europeana could have developed into a true cultural European project that fosters cooperation between citizens that are willing to contribute to it, either integrated into wikipedia or as some sort of wikipedia clone! At the moment, it is only a cultural search engine with millions of external and not integrated content “items”, basically a traditional library catalogue with some nice thumbnails!

  1. Thanks for that very interesting link, Brusselsblogger. I already noticed the copyright issue, which prevented me from posting a picture.
